The article focuses on the people of Mabou, Nova Scotia. Mabou's people are hardworking and close-knit. Say a farmer has trouble finishing bringing in his hay. The other farmers are right there with their tractors and wagons to make sure that the hay gets put away before the rains come. A Grandmothers' Club was established in Mabou. Every Tuesday morning now they get together at ten o'clock sharp to pray for all of their grandchildren.
